When we arrived, I noticed they had a few new menu items under their seasonal section that I was excited to try! I decided to try the Saigon Wrap. From their description: "Braised lemongrass tofu, lightly pickled daikon and carrot twirls, brown and jasmine rice, cucumber strips, fresh cilantro and basil, tangy peanut sauce in an organic whole wheat wrap." Yum, yum, yum! It sounded like the perfect, light meal for a sunny summer day!

We also saw that they finally added the Oklahoma Bacon Cheeseburger to the regular menu (it used to only be seasonal). Can I get a whoop-whoop? The OBC is one of the yummiest things on the menu, and while it might not be as healthy as some other items, it is definitely a must-try for those looking for a decadent treat! Even my non-veg boyfriend loves it! And, that's what he ordered! The OBC is huge, but it's so good that even little ol' me has been known to polish off the whole burger in one sitting!
For those interested, the OBC is made with "...thinly sliced original Seitan, melted cheddar, caramelized onions, crispy tempeh bacon on a bun slathered with BBQ sauce and ranch dressing, lettuce, carrots, onions, and tomato and topped with crunchy battered dill pickles chips." Seriously, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. My favorite part of this amazing burger? The crispy fried pickles on top!!!
To complete the meal, the BF and I got a plate of chili cheese fries to split (he ended up eating most of them since my Saigon Wrap really filled me up). From the menu: "Native Seasoned Fries smothered in our homemade chili. Topped with Native cheese and diced red onions."
Chili Cheese Fries, vegan style!
My Saigon Wrap was absolutely delicious. I loved the fresh tasting lemongrass marinated tofu and the peanut sauce was to die for!! This is a great seasonal item that I hope Native Foods will keep around for a while, because I would definitely order it again.
I topped off my meal with some lavender lemonade, and by the end my troubles had melted away as I sunk into a delicious food coma!
Cheers to Native Foods for filling my belly with very good things and also making me feel like a billion bucks again!
